Chilterns and Thames Valley

A Goring

The River Thames cuts across the Chilterns at Goring Gap.

Ascent: 287 metres
Duration: 2 hours 49 minutes

Walk 27: Lardon Chase, Moulsford and Streatley

To the west of the river the walk climbed out along ancient byways across chalk hills. Just as I descended to the river once more I didn't notice a rigid branch lying low across the path. A trickle of warm blood ran down from my forehead; I'd suffered a goring near Goring.

Walk 12: Goring

Goring itself is on the east side of the Gap. This shorter walk meandered through wooded slopes and across recently planted field. It should've been a lovely walk but I can't help but think everyone's staring at my rather spectacular scar.
